When I first proposed to my amazing wife, Ariana Gordon Stecker, I thought I’d leave all of the wedding planning up to her; she is, after all, owner of Iris Fields – a wedding and event planning company. I soon realized, however, that there were certain parts of the wedding, like the music and food, that I wanted to be involved in and give my input on. With that said, giving my input is a lot different than actually doing the tasks As a very busy man, I needed to be able to pass along tasks and know that they were going to get done correctly, because after all my time is money (it’s true, I work in finance). I saw first hand, how much detail and attention goes into planning a wedding from start to finish and we were fortunate to have the Iris Fields staff to help us along the way. Throughout the entire process they were there to make sure we dotted all of our I’s and crossed all our T’s. The great thing about having Iris Fields throughout the planning process was that they took care of all of the small things that can really weigh you down, so we could actually ENJOY our engagement and the planning process… But hands down, nothing was better than having Iris Fields there for the day of our wedding. They made sure that everything was done the way we wanted it done and that everything went out without any problems! Iris Fields, I cannot thank you enough for helping us with one of the most important days of our lives.
There is no greater gift on your wedding day than peace of mind. Iris Fields offered me a sense of security on the most important day of my life that each of the special details I had spent 18 months planning would unfold exactly as I envisioned. My wedding was memorable and perfect because everything fell into place and was executed seamlessly in their hands. I concentrated only on the moments that would change my life, the man I married and the people who gathered around us on this landmark occasion, feeling calm with Iris Fields in the background. Never once did any matter disrupt or distract me from the significance of the wedding because Ariana and Danielle had it covered. Getting to know both women prior to June 5th was nothing short of a pleasure. They were first and foremost professional, attentive, prompt and thorough. They double and triple confirmed each detail so no stone was left unturned and no surprise would be had the day of. On top of their excellent service they are the loveliest women. Excited and encouraging, sweet and understanding, they became dear friends on my journey down the aisle. - Nicole Kmiotek, Bride
Like all of the members of the Global Board of the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association, every initiative I undertake for HBA is a labor love, and nothing less than perfection will do. So when I needed to plan a 20th Anniversary dinner for two decades of Women of the Year (WOTY) honorees, I chose not to leave anything to chance. There was no question that Iris Fields would do a stellar job. Having known Ariana Gordon for years and personally experienced her special touch in planning unique and memorable events in New York City, I knew she would find the perfect venue to honor my esteemed colleagues. It was grand, yet intimate, and holding it at the 21 Club, that previous bastion of “Male-dom,” added a lovely touch of humor and served as the perfect backdrop for a dinner celebrating the strides made in women’s leadership in the healthcare industry. Ariana and her team made everything seem so effortless and ensured that we delivered an event that will be hard to top next year. But, of course, we’ll call Iris Fields to ensure perfection! - Eve D.
